Lindsay-Abaire's "Wonder of the World" Opens at ABQ's Auxiliary Dog Theatre

It has been nice to do plays instead of musicals lately. The production into which I have found my way this time is David Lindsay-Abaire's Wonder of the World at Albuquerque's Auxiliary Dog Theatre.

Cass finds out that her husband has a dirty little secret...deep down...way down, and so she leaves him to find the life that she thought she should have had. She ends up in Niagara Falls with a list of things she wants to do with her life, which includes wear a wig, wear overalls, have sex with a stranger, make friends with a clown and more. Along the way, she befriends a suicidal alcoholic named Lois, seduces Mike, Captain of the Maid of the Mist (that's me!), and even goes through group therapy with a cast of colorful characters. It's hilarious!

If you are in the ABQ between now and May 23, come aboard for the adventure that is Wonder of the World.  The production stars Amy Suman as Cass and Kristín Hansen as Lois. Visit for more information.

Here's a teaser to tide you over. Enjoy!
